Walking 10000

The International Governing Body (just like an Olympic sport) of Walking 10,000 Steps A Day started in Japan in 1960’s and soared to popularity in the 1980’s when Dr. Hatano  Walking 10000 Steps Program Logoproved that 10,000 steps of activity burned about 15-20% of a day’s caloric intake and that balance between the Resting Energy Expenditure (REE) and Exercise Energy Expenditure was adequate to achieve and maintain a healthy body. Y. Kato’s father invented accurate pedometers to track this popular program in 1965. Walking with pedometers became very popular in Japan. The USA discovered accurate pedometers only when ACCUSPLIT imported them for Researchers of physical activity, starting with the A.C.T. Studies in the 90’s.Y.

Both Y. Kato and Dr. Hatano will be contributing along with W. Ron Sutton, Mr. Pedometer, to the growth of information about the 10000 Steps A Day movement in the USA at Walking10000.org
